About the Network

BreakOUT! (New Orleans, LA) and Streetwise and Safe (New York, NY) have partnered on a project to create a National LGBTQ Youth “Know Your Rights” Network over a one year period.

Born out of conversations, workshops, surveys, and general kiki with LGBTQ youth organizations across the country, young people consistently identified the need for media, materials, and strategies in doing Know Your Rights (KYR) work.

Young people also identified needing more capacity to engage in KYR work – we believe that one way to build the capacity of organizations and groups to do this work is through having a network of support that folks can use as little or as much as they want to enhance their work.
